Can't answer too well on "Sunday in Hell," though Branford Bikes sells copies of it.

The Dancing Chain is a wonderful book, lavishly illustrated, chock full of the stories of the persons involved ... the photos and line drawings are great (lots of Daniel Rebour!), the organization makes sense ...

note - from the perspective of a former history major, my perception is that there is no boring history, only bad presentations of it. This is a WONDERFUL presentation, but it helps if you're a bike fiend ...
